. no response yet. >> what do americans want more than anything else from washington, d.c.? number one, accountability. if you say what you mean, you better mean what you say. he said i was going to use c-span, and again and again and again -- i think he had it six times. american people say open it up on c-span. brian was smart to challenge him. the second thing they want is to be heard. they want washington, not just to listen, but actually hear what the public is saying. they feel like they're being shut out. they're being denied the opportunity to hear the debate. and third, it makes them very nervous when you've got a piece of legislation that is 2,000 pages long. the bible isn't 2,000 pages and that tells the story of thousands of years, tens of hundreds of thousands of years. whatever it is. that's why the american people are so fed up. that's why congress's numbers are back to where they were in 2006. >> neil: republicans numbers are too. >> because they see the republicans, democrats and the american people are saying -- >> that's what the tea party guys seem to be making of i

. >> neil: well, never mind they paid back the tarp loans with interest. washington interested in having to pay back more. the white house looking at imposing $120 billion in new fees on banks that benefitted from tarp to pay back tarp. yep. even those banks that already did pay back tarp. so who is really getting zoomed here? the banks that could use the money to make more loans or the customers who likely have a tougher time now getting those loans? dave ramsey knows, he's simulcasting. and you can catch him on the hit show on fox business network. dave, it's just odd. i know everyone likes to bust the banks. man, they can't win for even paying the money back! >> you know, we had to have them, they had to stay open, so let's keep them open. why? so we can punish them later for doing what they do, which is what bankers are out there to make money. you know, it all kind of comes back to this bow this bo thing floating around. it guess the obama administration is scared to death that it will look like a bailed out companies issues a bunch of bonuses, and if they still owe we the taxpayer

until weeks after the election. what is being done right now to insure the winner heads to washington, asap. former president bush regretting starting tarp with this new bank tax? we'll talk to one of his top officials after this. >>> massachusetts right now where the republican senate candidate scott brown closing in. democrats going all out, release ago web ad supporting martha coakley today and bringing in bill clinton in the flesh. secretary of state saying it could take weeks to seat the winner. this is a former democratic congressman. good to have you. >> great to be with you. >> you're trying to make sure that whoever is seated is seated promptly. right? >> that's exactly right. constitution says we're a nation that wants its government to be for the people and by the people and when the people go through the process of election and particularly up in massachusetts where they've had elections for many years, the outcome of that election, once it's known, should not be delayed by the democrats or the republicans. common cause is a nonpartisan, bipartisan organization, it believe

spenders out of washington. for them it isn't about blue or red, it's about green, your green. dale mccoy is a democratic tea party activist and mark is national coordinator for tea party patriots. dale, to you first. your message is to get them to quit spending. how are you going to do that? how are you going to pressure the politicians to get the spending down? >> well, we are going to continue to organize, we are going to continue to do what we've been doing, and i think that they are counting on us to back off or feel that we are just not being heard. but i can assure you that this fight isn't over, this fight just started. >> i'm told you have 15 million members, dale. is that accurate? can we expect those kind of numbers in the field come election year? >> i would tell you that i expect us to vote in droves. you know, there may be some disagreements, but this is not a republican or democrat thing. and if you give us a candidate that believes in constitutional values, fiscal responsibility we will back that candidate and you can expect a huge turnout. >> mark, i have to ask the qu
that worked this is is a -- is a system that failed. all the monkeying in washington and tinkering with this is not going to create jobs. we're going to have a huge economic downturn just like we did post-9/11. >> what you got going this weekend? >> we're going to talk to the former direct of security for lli airlines. flown with them many times. they profile everybody. but they don't make everybody go through all the procedures. they do some screening and they profile. and if they think you're a threat -- i'm pretty sure they would think you are, neil -- beat the hell out of you. >> they really do. >> but when you get on that airplane, there's two things you know. everyone else has been given the third degree and you're pretty safe and there's an armed sky marshall on that plane. somebody try something he better be quick because the guy's gonna get shot before he gets it. >> 76th birthday for elvis today. we'll do a little tribute. >> please tell me you're not -- >> i wouldn't do that to the "fox news" channel. i like my job. i like employment. not going to the ranks of unemployed
" covering it in washington and the president singles out those nine supreme court justices. >> horrible. >> neil: leaving aside the accuracy of what he said, which you want to get into, the theater of that. everyone standing up and surrounding the guys, what did you make of that? >> i thought it was horrible. it argued in the supreme court. it's one of the great highlights of my career as a lawyer, when i was in the reagan administration. brought my mother to watch me argue. when he said it, i was on an airplane watching it on airplane. i kind of lost it. for two reasons. first of all, embracing the supreme court of the united states in a partisan -- here is the president talking about wanting to be bipartisan. and he makes this like unprecedented partisan attack on the supreme court so that his congressmen and senators who agree with him, not the republicans all get up and cheer. they are leaning over them and cheering. >> neil: your issue was this was false, that they were not giving a green light to government -- >> dead wrong. i mean the president is going to do that, my goodness, y
and the embassy in nigeria reports this back to washington, the first thing that should have happened was looking at his visa, then cancelling it, then putting him on the no-fly list, that could have been done based on the father's report alone. but then when we get intelligence of yemen about using a nigerian making an attack on the united states, for sure we should have cancelled his visa instead of saying, well, we'll look at his visa again after it's expired. because the results of that was 300 people on the plane almost expired. so this is a very big wake-up call. and the first place we should wake up is to toss out the views of the so-called privacy advocates who have been hangin' around the fringes of this question for the last five years, a body scan with the technology today doesn't invade anybody's privacy. you can't tell whether it's a man or a woman. >> but yet it's these privacy groups, governor, that still make a big deal of it. we're just getting word that the minneapolis airport. more on that. we'll let you know but it's on the heels of this disruption in newark a couple days ago.
